New Hope Oahu Connects Congregation with Blackmagic Design

PostWed Jun 18, 2014 4:45 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that New Hope Oahu, one of the largest churches in Hawaii and one of the fastest growing in the U.S., is using Blackmagic Design as the backbone of its live production and A/V setup at its main Honolulu facility. New Hope Oahu relies on Blackmagic’s ATEM 2 M/E Production Switcher and Broadcast Panel, Blackmagic Audio Monitor and a host of additional products to help broadcast services to more than 12,000 in person and online attendees.

With 31 locations in Hawaii, seven in mainland U.S. and 14 international ones, New Hope Oahu has amassed a huge following both locally and around the world. The church uses the ATEM 2 M/E Production Switcher to broadcast five services every Sunday and a midweek service on Wednesdays to two screens on either side of the stage in the 1,200 person auditorium, an outside LED screen for the 500 person overflow area and via an online stream, which is also sent to monitors throughout the facility. The service is also simulcast to three satellite campuses throughout Hawaii. The Blackmagic Audio Monitor allows the broadcast video directors to selectively monitor between the live feeds and pre recorded playbacks that need to be cued.

“Blackmagic let us streamline and clean up a lot of the clutter from patch bays, bulky switcher units and allowed us to scale down the amount of equipment we actually need,” said Tim Savage, director of media & production, New Hope Oahu. “Before Blackmagic, when we were analog based, we had four 42 space rack units filled with different types of products for conversion, switching, patching, etc. Now with Blackmagic’s equipment, we have one custom built 32 space rack that holds everything and still has space left. It’s allowed us to become very mobile as everything can simply fold up and roll from location to location for events outside of the church.”
